What's flying over your house? Thread #2

Recommended Posts

Well these weren't fliers but deserve a mention, and there doesn't seem to be anywhere else to put this.

Yesterday heading South on a trailer on the A1 near Colsterworth was a grey/green camouflaged Gazelle.

Today on the A46, near Swinderby just South of Lincoln and heading South on a low loader was a Lancaster fuselage.

It was partially covered by tarpaulins but I noticed numbers either side of the nose turret, 976 I think? There were also names in white on the nose.

It was followed by a Discovery with RAF recovery in dayglo letters on the back. The Disco was towing a trailer with another small fuselage section on it.

I wonder if anyone knows where it's from and where it was going to.

Fairly unusually for a Saturday, an Atlas came overhead on the way to Leeds-Bradford and as I wrote this has just come over again. First time I have seen anything military for a while practising circuits into LBA

Air Chathams is giving pleasure flights from our local drome, Paraparaumu, with their DC-3 'Skyliner' ZK-AWP. An aircraft close to my heart as I spannered on it - including working on the Skyliner

conversion in '63.

 

It had been in Air Chathams colours but they recently repainted it in the 'proper' NZNAC scheme.

 

I had forgotten about it until about an hour ago while out in the garden I heard the distant rumble and had to scrabble from out of the undergrowth to get a glimpse of the old girl heading low up the beach.

In a clear blue sky over Great Blakenham near Wattisham I just saw a Kalitta 747 heading for somewhere secret according to Flightradar24. Don't think I will stop being amazed at seeing the red & gold stripe from the ground.

News Helicopter’s from the Chicago networks. Not quite sure why but local GOS map shows road blocked nearby. Im guessing very bad accident or Law enforcement issue. I do have a state prison 2.5 miles south of us.

Cant see it as its dark but sounds like a Chinook from the Illinois Army National guard. It was low, loud, and not registering on Flightradar24. Took off hot coming out of the local airport 1.25 miles to my south, heading north like theres no tomorrow.

Yesterday at 1600, a Mirage 2000 just north of us heading east, first one this year. Used to see them in pairs quite frequently when we first arrived, not so much any more.

Currently over our apartment in Tainan, Taiwan. Apologies for the the terrible quality, they were taken from my phone, but it's a rarely seen subject so I thought worth showing.

 

Taiwanese Air Force F-CK-1 Cing-Kuo from Tainan AB.
